Meg Wilcox

Meg’s first concert was Sharon, Lois & Bram in Edmonton at the tender age of two. The dancing elephants, the sing-alongs, the skinnamarinks — she was hooked! She has been going gangbusters with music ever since.
Meg has travelled across the country making radio. She has hosted CBC music shows on Radio One, Radio 2 and Radio 3, and has also helped create special programs like CBC Music’s Searchlight band search.
Most recently, she helped build Banff Centre Radio, an arts-focus radio network based out of the Banff Centre.
Through her career she has had the pleasure of interviewing many of Canada’s talented musicians, from Vancouver to Ottawa, from tiny bars in Sudbury to the Junos.
“k.d. lang once told me I have a very Canadian-radio-sounding voice. I don’t know if she meant it as a compliment but I’m taking it as one!” Meg says.
She currently teaches radio and journalism -- including podcasting -- at Calgary’s Mount Royal University.
Her musical tastes are close to unlimited. What does she play on the air?
"A bit of pop, a bit of rock, some electro and whatever else has me grooving at the moment -- and always lots of Canadian artists," she says.
As a journalist, professor and podcast producer, Meg is always interested whenever there's a chance to mix story and music... in whatever form works best.
Her musical tastes may have evolved since that first concert, but when Meg caught Sharon and Bram at the Roots and Blues Festival in Salmon Arm a few years ago, her rendition of “Peanut Butter and Jelly” may have been one of the most emphatic on record.
